Christal Seas Scuba Holidays
2 to 10 September 2024
8 nights at the Hotel Faial Resort
The Azores offers some amazing diving and wildlife encounters including blue sharks, whale sharks, mako sharks and various rays.
Faial island is arguably the most beautiful of the Azores islands, separated from Pico island by a narrow strait. It's a stunning island, and popular for the almost guaranteed whale and dolphin encounters. But look beneath the waves and you find a new exciting world. Faial has great reefs and walls for divers, but it's the blue sharks that attract most people here. Shallow encounters in blue water... what's not to like!
The 4 star hotel Faial resort is within walking distance of the island's historic centre. It's beautifully laid out around gardens and courtyards, with the added benefit of having the Haliotis dive centre on site. There are 131 rooms spread over 2 executive suites, 4 junior suites, 21 executive rooms and 104 standard rooms. We are staying in standard rooms, with twin or double beds, en suite, air con, free wifi, satellite TV and mini bar. But if you want more space to relax in, why not upgrade? The larger rooms are extremely good value and usually have sea views - please request at the time of booking.
The restaurant has enviable views over the city and marina of Horta. Faial island was made for exploring. After your diving is done, make sure to spend some time on the island itself, if nothing else to take in the vistas. A day trip to Pico island is ideal for the day before your flight, when your diving is done. But if you prefer a more leisurely pace, the hotel has many facilities on site. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, gym and even a Turkish bath!
This promises to be an amazing trip - be sure to book your place soon to avoid missing out!
